So I'm actually feeling pretty good lately, quite happy really :) i'm content with everything at the moment (except for now when I have 700 words to go on my essay due tomorrow), things are going quite happily. I have a lot to be thankful for including great friends and a fantastic family that keep me smiling all the time.....except for the early hours in the morning, but hey that's just me and I could sleep forever! haha.
Lately I've been procrastinating heaps! It's so bad :/ I usually just fall into these mega geeky phases where I do everything and study heaps. But as of now it's just forcing myself and doing essays the night before! But I promise I will create a new studying regime and stick with it, hope it's not like me and diets :P haha!
Anyway it's my parents 20th wedding anniversary this year in April! :D So exciting my sisters and I are planning a celebration for them! Were thinking Croqenbuche and awesome decorations! I'm so excited this will *fingers crossed* be a huge surprise for them if my little sister doesn't spill the beans lol. Oh and it will be my birthday soon! :D 17 days!! And I'll be 19! It's such a random age, in the middle of 18 and 20, probably because it's an odd number haha.
SO yeah that's my life at the moment I have so many places to go from Ikea to party supply shops in the next few weeks haaha should be fun!
Lenka and I are going to watch Red Riding Hood tomorrow, I think we'll both pee our pants getting scared! I swear if I have nightmares she has to pay compensation for therapy hahah!
This episode was awesome! Barney and Robin see how far they can go touching stuff at the Museum it's soooo funny :D something i would love to do hahah!
p.s. LOVE LOVE LOVE this comic above made me giggle for days!!

Had an incredibly funny day with Lenka today!! It was insane and yes we received some very weird looks haha!
Quote of the day: *lenka pointing hands at each other* "So are you guys like together?" hahahaha haahah it was insanely funny!
I finally bought my Martian Slippers today they are way too awesome! My little sister is jealous of them and tries to steal them!
I'm also sick which fails as I have three assessments due and a driving test to practice for :(
I would also like to take the time to say a shout out to Japan and hope they are on the fast road to recovery. What you have gone through is a terrible and unimaginable ordeal and my thoughts are with you all.
That's it for now!

Wow it's been a few months. So much has happened and so after starting Uni again I thought I would start blogging too! So this semester has been pretty great so far! Nearly all 4 of my subjects are focussing on Ancient Greece right now, which is great! I have a passage analysis on the Iliad, which I have missed doing so it should be fun! I've also started learning Ancient Greek. WOW! It's so awesome but really hard at the same time. There's also a lot to memorise, and I hate rote learning so I'll have to suck it up haha. I can successfully read it but I don't know what the words mean haha except for a few.
I guess this semester started out differently to how I pictured it. So much has changed and I've realised that things can really change in a second, in a blink of the eye. It's so weird to think that certain things would remain the same forever, or for at least a long time and then suddenly they're cut off and you're left standing as if someone just slapped your face. It's a horrible feeling and hopefully as time goes on so too will this terrible feeling. I guess you're just left going how could this have gone wrong and feeling angry.
But yeah, Uni's been good! Lenka and I went and watched the Adjustment Bureau the other day with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. I really enjoyed it and it was about this idea of fate, and how our lives are all mapped out for us from the moment we are born. However Matt Damon's character has to 'fight his fate' to end up being with the girl he loves. It was interesting to compare this notion of fate, where we have free will and we make our own decisions, we determine our own fates to that of fate in the Iliad. Where fate is a presupposed conception and there is no way to change it at all, it's just something which is accepted.
Also we were studying Euripides' Trojan Women and after reading it again, I have come to the conclusion that it is my favourite play, one of my favourites....*cough Antigone cough* haha. It's such an incredibly powerful representation of the most innocent, in a time of war. I think it's influence comes particularly from the fact that it still very much appeals to what were going through today. From Iraq to Libia, Egypt and Yemen it's just a heart wrenching play every scene worst than the last. It makes you feel so terrible afterwards, man Euripides you really were fantastic! Some 2,000 years later people are still studying your plays, still performing them. It's amazing. I really want to see a live production of this play, it would be incredible!!!
Also going for my driving test soon! eeeeep i'll let you know if I pass haha :/
And we also have the Tutankhamun exhibition opening up in April in Melbourne can't wait for it! :D
I also have two weddings coming up, and one of them is big. Which means fancy dress and everything! I'll post pictures up when it's passed haha :)
This blog post's shout out's go to-

Alenka: the two fail guys who couldn't find their seat at the movies and we both nearly peed our pants!
